I am beginning to think the borders of my Allemande quilt are jinxed! First I find I don't have enough of the border fabric, which is highly unsual for me because I always buy a little extra. I was able to locate an online shop that still had this print from Moda's Faded Memories line from 2005, which is a small miracle. I ordered enough for a continuous border and the fabric arriived yesterday.
I pressed it and began to fold it on my cutting table to cut the borders, and noticed to my shock a small hole in the middle of the 3-1/2 yard piece. Not a big deal - the hole was only about 1/8" big and I could cut around it if I had to.
Then I discovered the SECOND hole, about 2 inches from the first. This one was 1/2" across and there is no way I can cut my four 6-1/2" wide borders from the piece of fabric and avoid the 2 holes. What a disappointment! I am still waiting to hear from the vendor, although I'm fairly certain she doesn't have another 3-1/2 yards of the fabric. Now I must order again and wait again. So frustrating when all I want to do is finish this darn quilt and get it to my longarm quilter!
